Local government intervention, firm–government connection, and industrial land expansion in China, by Zhiji Huang, Canfei He & Han Li

Abstract

This study investigates the driving forces of industrial land expansion under China’s unique land use system in the context of economic transition with an explicit emphasis of the interactive relationship between local government and enterprises. Stemming from institutional insights in a transitional economy, this study develops a novel framework to integrate governmental intervention, firm–government connection, and economic transition to explain the spatial patterns and reveal the mechanisms of industrial land expansion in China. Based on the national utilization conveyance data and spatial econometrics, this study confirms that local government intervention and firm–government connection affect industrial land development significantly and in a spatially heterogeneous way. This study contributes an institutional and transitional knowledge to understand rapid industrial land expansion in China.
